The new law takes effect July 1, with many calling it a “constitutional carry” bill.
“Today I signed legislation protecting the Second Amendment rights of Iowa’s law-abiding citizens while still preventing the sale of firearms to criminals and other dangerous individuals,” Reynolds said in a statement Friday afternoon.
The Cult of Gun Control, of course, developed Sudden Butt Hurt Syndrome and went into propaganda mode
Democrats and gun violence prevention groups had called on Reynolds to veto the legislation.
“A person could be able to purchase a firearm from a private seller with no background check and then carry that firearm anywhere in public without any type of firearms proficiency training if this bill is adopted,” State Senate Minority Leader Zach Wahls, D-Coralville, told Reynolds on a call, according to the Des Moines Register.
Yes, and a bad guy could do that BEFORE if they had bad intentions. And, of course there is the fact that the left always blabbered on and on about such scenarios while offering squat to back it up, as Animal points out
Well, OK then – according to USACarry.com, sixteen states have some variation or another on no-permit-required, Constitutional carry, including our own adopted home of Alaska. Surely it would be the simplest of things for This Wahls character to assemble some statistics on the horrible increase in accidental shootings and crimes committed with guns in those states following passage of these laws.
So why hasn’t he? Probably because no such statistics exist. As is always the case, the dire predictions of the gun-banners never come to pass.
How very true. Of course do not expect the media to ask about facts or stats that support the doomsday scenarios the Cult of Gun Control always predict. Journalists looking for facts is so yesterday, besides activism allows the media to express how “woke” they are
